Competition closes 31st October 2017.

The competition will be judged by travel writer, Paul Clammer! www.paulclammer.com

Paul’s road into travel writing follows the usual convoluted path. By training, he’s a molecular biologist, but a backpacking trip between jobs and an unexpected encounter in an Iranian teahouse led to him being diverted into the travel industry. He’s worked as a tour guide for adventure travel companies in Morocco, Turkey and Pakistan, and has been writing travel guides full-time since 2003.

In 2001 Paul travelled around Taliban-controlled Afghanistan and ended up having dinner with two Taliban ministers a fortnight before the 9/11 attacks. The following year he wrote the Afghanistan travel website Kabul Caravan, which led to him being approached by Lonely Planet, who asked him to write about the country for them – the first time they’d had an author research there since 1978. That work eventually evolved into their ground-breaking stand-alone guidebook Afghanistan, published in 2007.

Paul has contributed to over two dozen guidebooks for Lonely Planet, including acting as the head author on their Morocco and Dominican Republic & Haiti guidebooks, as well as covering tougher destinations such as Pakistan, Nigeria and Mauritania for them.
